At First Glance: 5 Key Style Elements to Make or Break Your WOW Factor

Trish Keena-The Wardrobe Whisperer

I’m a big cheerleader for women who want to make changes in their lives and want things to be different.

I’m just like you.  I have walked in your shoes. If you think you’re looking at someone who has it right all the time, 24/7, then it’s not real. There is no one like that.

By the time we reach our 50’s, stuff has happened. We are in our next chapter, our Second 50.  Some women are in a good place and very contented in their avenue while many others have been met with body shape changes and many other life-changing challenges.

I’m here to help you find your authentic individual style and fast-track your confidence and success in all areas of your life in your Feisty 50s and beyond.

Like many image consultants, I came to this industry later in life. 

I was transitioning into my Second Act and was looking for answers about how to navigate this time of my life.

Inevitably in 2004, I began my image and personal styling training with The Australian Image Company in Melbourne, now Image Innovators in Melbourne and continue attending every training opportunity offered by the Association of Image Consultants International, Australian chapter.

My wardrobe was wild and dysfunctional and is still a work in progress as my style is evolving as I age. For most of my adult life, I experienced all the challenges of a non-standard body shape and I was clueless about what to do about it.  As a result, I had lots of hits and misses buying clothes to fit and flatter me. I wasn’t aware that we were all different, I thought it was just me.

There were so many opportunities which were brilliantly disguised as enormous challenges and traumas, but they were the best thing that happened to me.

All these events have made me who I am, but they were also catalysts for my awareness and my education into the many life skills and the happiness I now have.

At age 61 I became a grey divorcee, having to split assets again now for the second time.  It was a very traumatic time financially and emotionally.

I worked through it, found my strengths, protected my health and learned how to find joy in every day.  I was fortunate I already had some life skills to pick myself and dust myself off, and a couple of staunch allies in my corner. If you are struggling with something similar I offer my insights.

I specialise in personal presence and the art of influence, personal styling for the non-standard shape body, wardrobe wellness, healthy body image and self-worth.

I would love to take you on a journey of detoxing your style, your environment and your life to create a space for more substance and depth of who you are and where you’re going.

There is so much free advice on the internet, it’s confusing as much as it is enlightening. 

I’m not an expert because I have everything in perfect order – I don’t.  I’m an expert because I have real-life experience in resilience, starting over again (twice) and picking up some handy tools (check out my Tool Box below) along the way.  An academic degree in psychology may have been handy, but it wouldn’t have saved me from learning the vital lessons that are never taught in university.

As a result of my desire to find some answers to making life more fun and fulfilling, I am in a constant search for ways to live life and do things better. Here are a few here.
